Hall of Fame Celebrates Texas’ Historic Fall Classic Victory with World Series Trophy July 18-20
(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – A Texas-sized celebration will be a part of Induction Weekend 2024 in Cooperstown.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate the Texas Rangers’ 2023 World Series title July 18-20 at the home of baseball. The Rangers’ 2023 World Series trophy will be on display in the Museum the same weekend in which Rangers third baseman Adrián Beltré is inducted into the Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2024.
The trophy will be on exhibit at the Museum on Thursday, July 18, Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20. Visitors will be permitted to take pictures with the trophy.
A 2023 Rangers World Series ring will also be on display as part of the Museum’s Autumn Glory exhibit, which includes a display honoring the 2023 World Series champion Rangers with artifacts, photographs and ephemera detailing the franchise’s first World Series title. Artifacts in the exhibit include:
- Cap worn by manager Bruce Bochy; six managers have at least four World Series titles, but only Bochy has accomplished the feat with multiple teams
- Batting helmet worn by World Series MVP Corey Seager
- Jersey worn by Adolis García when he hit his game-winning home run in Game 1
- Glove worn by pitcher Josh Sborz, who recorded a save in the final game
- Batting gloves worn by Evan Carter, who set a record with nine doubles in the postseason
- Jersey and elbow guard worn by Marcus Semien in Game 5
- Spikes and cap worn by Game 5 winner Nathan Eovaldi
- World Series luggage tag used by Will Smith, who became the first player in history to win three straight World Series while playing for three different teams; the Rangers set a record with an 11-0 mark on the road during the postseason
Entrance to the Autumn Glory exhibit is included with Museum admission. Autumn Glory will feature the 2023 Rangers artifacts through the end of the 2024 World Series, when artifacts from the most recent Fall Classic will be put on exhibit.
Visitors will have the chance to relive the 2023 season, the first World Series title in Rangers franchise history, and create new memories in Cooperstown, where artifacts from the Rangers’ world title will be preserved forever.
The Museum will be open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. on July 18-19 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 20. During the weekend, visitors can explore Rangers history through the Museum’s Starting Nine program, showcasing each team’s must-see artifacts on display in exhibits across the Museum.
